Employees and volunteers with the Anniston Army Depot’s Christmas Cheer program deliver more than 37,000 pounds of boxes of gifts to Calhoun County’s Department of Human Resources office in Anniston. 210 DHR children in protective custody will receive presents that are to be distributed to the families by DHR case workers in time to be opened on Christmas. For each child, employees were able to give gifts valued between $150 and $175. Depot and tenant employees gave more than $31,000 in support of the children. The depot’s 32-year history with the Christmas Cheer program began in 1983 with assistance to depot employees where they provided food for the holidays.
